'degenerated' WBC's/Rich

Does anyone know what it means if one has degenerated WBC's? I am

assuming that this means that they are damaged. I have had blood tests

come back that the ABC's are so degenerated that a manual diff cannot

be done on them. My WBC count is also very low - 2, where the low end

of the range is 4.

My dr and I checked out the possibility that the speciman might have

been damaged by the lab, thus causing degradation of the speciman, but

this does not look like it could have occurred.

If degenerated WBC's could indicate certain diseases, what other

abnormal lab results should I be looking for that indicate these

diseases? (I have not heard that PWC's have degenerated cells, but have

heard that their WBC count can be low) To me this means that there is

something wrong with the bone marrow. Thanks - leslie
